One of our patrons has read Governess of HighlandHall and has written a review recommending the book. We welcome patron recommendations.
This copy of The Governess of Highland Hall came as an advance reading copy in exchange for an honest review.
This is a very interesting and engaging novel. The characters are three-dimensional and flawed, much as any person we might meet in real life. Interestingly enough, I didn’t like any of the characters to begin with; the heroine was the only exception. As the novel progressed several of them began to grow and change and I found as the book drew to a close that I liked the vast majority of them after all.
I appreciated Julia’s struggle with determining and following God’s will in a difficult and emotional situation. I also enjoyed that, while not sugar-coating the trials we face in daily life often inflicted by others, the heroine still asserted God’s sovereignty in all circumstances.
It is not only the main characters who are well-developed. Several of the secondary characters piqued my curiosity and I find myself wondering if the second book in the Edwardian Brides series will contain some of these same characters, perhaps in a starring role?
I absolutely loved the ending of this novel. Without giving anything away, it came to a satisfying and realistic conclusion.
Filled with historical detail and a cast of interesting characters, I would recommend The Governess of Highland Hall to any fan of inspirational historical fiction.
